Luxembourg city report

Luxembourg City Site & Situation Report This REPORT (a mix of detailed written analysis and documentary evidence: paintings, googlemaps, diagrams, quotations, note of sources etc.) has TWO main sections, and requires INDEPENDENT research and analysis, applying learning on maps, sites and situations: SECTION A: THE SITE What category of site is Luxembourg City (e.g. a wet point site, bridging point, valley site…)? What evidence is there to back up your answer? SECTION B: THE SITUATION What is the situation of Luxembourg City? That means analysing the strategic elements, including resources, in and around the area. Remember, you are focussing on the situation as it was centuries ago when small populations settled here and built up their settlement over time.

Are there any limiting factors in the situation, suggesting an end to growth? PRESENTATION: Write or type several paragraphs on both Section A and B. Provide maps, photos, diagrams as evidence for both sections. Try to include some short quotes from useful academic sources, always noting your source.
